I like Adam Sandler as a dramatic actor. I thought he did a good job in Reign Over Me, and now he has a dramatic turn in Funny People. He plays a popular comedian who is struggling with his health, lifestyle and decisions. Performances all around are good. It earns its R rating from coarse language and continuous references to male anatomy. Some, very colorful and creative. Don't expect belly laughs, expect a good story, told well.
